Painting with rustoleum

Hi all,

Going to be getting my van painted soon and was wondering if anyone knew if you can use rustoleum combo colour through a spray gun?
Any help on this would be great. Thanks in advance.

Interior worktop

Hi all

I am re making my interior in my camper and not sure what to use as a worktop.
I want it black but don't want to use regular kitchen work tops as they are too thick. Does anyone know where I can buy a work top from in black for my camper? What do you guys use?
Cheers in advance

Painting headlining

Hi all,

Was just wondering if anyone out there has ever painted there headlining? I have some bad water stains on mine that I cannot remove so thought maybe I could spray paint it with some sort of fabric paint. Anyone got any experience or thoughts on this idea?
Cheers

Think I am gonna have to take it to someone who knows what they are doing as I have no idea and will probably make things a lot worse. Anyone know of a good vw mechanic in the ...

Van stalling when revved

Hi all,

I have an issue with my 81 2.0L air cooled.
When you start it, it runs on tickover but when you give it a little bit of revs it stalls!
Anyone got any ideas?

Zig unit shore power

Hi all,

I have a 1981 Danbury with a zig unit, the van has no plug sockets in there. My question is can you wire up plug sockets straight from the zig unit or do I have to put a consumer unit in coming from the zig unit some how.
Cheers
James
